John J. Lee

On late Saturday night, September 26th 1896, a fire broke out in the bakery of J.J. Lee located on the north side of Francis Street West a few rods from Colborne Street [FFG 2 Oct 1896; 4]. The building, constructed circa 1854, was owned by William Jordan. Within a week a new one storey frame building was under construction [FFG 9 Oct 1896; 4]. Lee disappears from the directories after 1897.
